AVON, Colorado ” More than a month after an ECO Transit bus had its window smashed in Avon, Colorado, police were able to identify and charge the man they believe caused the damage.

The incident happened on Jan. 1, when the bus driver told police a man he picked up from Eaglebend Apartments got on the bus, got mad and got off. He let his unkown anger be known by turning around and putting his fist through the left window of the bus’s double doors.

Through the investigation, the bus driver identified the man in a lineup. Police went to his home on Jan. 30 and took him to the police station. There, he was charged with criminal mischief. The damage to the bus was nearly $500.
